A busy morning schooling on the grass and it was good to get some practice into some of the novices.   Off to Southwell to saddle Organdi in the bumper and hoping she continues to show promise for her enthusiastic owners.

Lady Of Authority is declared at Wolverhampton tomorrow in the 7.20pm.  We are stepping her up in trip and hoping this will bring about some improvement as she has been disappointing.  She appears to have ability and has run well on the course before.

We sent Western Storm to Ben Brain yesterday to go on the over ground scope and he has had his soft palate re-cauterised and let us hope that brings him back to form.

Thank you to everyone who pointed out in the Cheltenham race card that we are in the lead in the Gloucestershire Trainers Championship.

Having won the Championship before, it would be good to do so again, but it’s early days – even for Man City.
